    We brought our daughters and their husbands to a late night dinner after a movie and as always, the server "Genti" was so attentive, funny and wonderful. The food was absolutely delicious and the baklava was warm and delicious. When I joked with my grandaughter that she couldn't eat any unless she could name what it was...when she balked. Genti brought her a complimentary chocolate cheesecake. All in all, it was the perfect place for the entire family to try the Greek cuisine and the Mediterranean delicacies.

    One of the best Greek/Mediterranean/Italian Restaurants in NYC. Every time that we go there to eat we discover another great dish. The servers are attentive and friendly all the time. We love it.

    The restaurant looks more like a pizza parlor but the food was very good. The menu is Greek with some Italian dishes as well. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Its a great place to go to before a show at the Standard.

    Telio is the nicest restaurant near Symphony Space. Generous portions of tasty Greek/Italian food, modestly priced.

  • Disappointing Dining Experience

    Dined on 7/10/2013
    When I got there, I found our table for six was located in the back of the restaurant near the kitchen, and we were seated in back of a large noisy family gathering so the noise level was irritating. The service was lackluster, we had to ask for more bread several times and our dishes didn't come out at the same time. The tzadiki appetizer was very good, but there wasn't much on the plate -- I have been to many Greek restaurants where they give you a larger portion. My cousin was unimpressed with the moussaka, a signature Greek dish. Another cousin ordered a Greek Salad as his main course, and they put on a slab of feta, rather than crumbling it up, unappealing. I was embarrassed and will not be revisiting this place again.

    Good quality basic Greek fare, plus pizza, generous portions, well priced. Telio was crowded on Friday night, several families with tired unhappy children. I think Telio would be noisy at almost any time, tables are cramped and there is nothing soft to help absorb sound.

    Very cold air in the restaurant, even with front door closed. Food, portions and pricing were fine. Not sensational, but above average and very acceptable. Temperature of the different items wasn't as hot as desirable, in every case, so would suggest paying attention to that.

    The place looks dreary - ugly depressing colors. It is too bad because the food is quite delicious and the staff is nice. It does not look fresh or inviting. I like old world, but not old, worn out. I had to ask the waiter to pick up paper napkins from the floor that were used by previous guests.

    Food was good, not great, but the portion sizes were huge. The lamb kebob was good but dfeinitely a little chewy. We all either cleaned our plates or took home left overs. I would definitely go here again, but their meat could be a little more tender.

    When we said we were dining here for the first time, our waitress confidently stated, "You'll be back." The food was delicious, her recommendations right on the mark. She was right. We would definitely eat at Telio again and again.

    Wonderful food, especially the appetizers and the lamb dishes. Grilled octopus and the spreads platter were incredible. Lamb dishes excellent. Desserts a little mixed - amazing almond cake but only ok baklava. Great service and very easy with a baby at lunchtime. Grey brunch deal too. Highly recommend.
